The Earth Scientist Sponsorship

NESTA offers the opportunity for organizations or major programs to sponsor an entire issue of TES. These issues typically focus entirely on the resources provided by the program, and offer an opportunity to highlight a suite of classroom activities and supporting science content for a specific program. Issue sponsors will be acknowledged in the publication. Recent examples include our Winter 2009 issue on Earth System Science sponsored by Pennsylvania State University, our Spring 2010 issue on the Oceans sponsored by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and our Fall 2010 issue on Rocks and Minerals sponsored by the Mineral Information Institute and the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration. For more information about issue sponsorship opportunities and costs for sponsorship, please be in touch with the NESTA Executive Director, Roberta Johnson, at

Current Issue

The Fall 2015 issue of The Earth Scientist is packed with information to engage students - from the robotics in Engineering to Explore the Ocean to exploring how floods happen and our responses to them to bringing the excitement of lightning into the classroom to explain safety. "It's Elementary" - a new, monthly column - makes its debut appearance in the pages of TES looking at different kinds of Earth materials. AGI's Earth Science Week is highlighted with daily activities, ideas on how to get involved, and lots of links. We also remember the passing of Jan Woerner, long-time supporter of the Earth Sciences and past-President of NESTA.

As we move into the digital format for the Journal, we encourage you to engage with us in creating a Journal that can meet the demands of the 21st century classroom and the teachers and students that make it come alive.
